Lady Bird's White House Tour

A few weeks ago, I posted Jackie Kennedy's 1962 tour here; and so I thought you fellows might like to see this less famous version done by Lady Bird Johnson in December 1968, just before Lyndon left office.

Mrs. Johnson was always a favorite of mine:  a great lady, and one of those steel magnolias that the South produces in such abundance.  If you ever get to central Texas, do be sure to stop and visit the LBJ Ranch, which is both a state and a national park, and which Lady Bird had a great deal to do with setting up.  It's quite lovely, and something of her spirit lingers there.

Thank you. It gave me some insight into the Johnsons that I had not held before. What a nice video.
